Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central School District


Pre-Referendum Planning And Educational Specification Development

B&D, as a partner to Mosaic Architects, was selected by the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central School District in 2013 to provide educational facility planning and referendum support services. Our team was tasked with determining how BH-BL High School could be transformed to support the district’s 21st century learning goals. We redefined the district’s classroom functional standards and developed an education specification and campus master plan that supported the referendum capital funding request, thus empowering the district and community to make a well-informed decision regarding the scope of the future high school project. In October 2013, district residents approved a $34.2 million renovations referendum with 68% support. This referendum would fund 33 projects identified as the most urgent in the areas of 21st century learning, infrastructure and energy conservation, athletics and recreation, and security.
